5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun and Beautifully Presented, 31 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: YO Sushi: The Japanese Cookbook (Paperback)
The Yo Sushi Cookbook is 192 pages of very clearly laid out recipes that are beautifully photographed and presented. The book is split into 5 sections; `The Basics' covers the basic ingredients and techniques such as how to cook rice, choose fish and make hand rolls. Sauces, Dressings and Marinades consist of easy to follow instructions on how to make all manner of sauces. The next three sections are around 50 pages each and are for Easy (Novice), Intermediate (Apprentice) and Advances (Samurai) dishes.

The Yo Sushi Cookbook is printed on very high quality paper, is brightly coloured and quite simply a pleasure just to open, it would make a great gift. The ingredients are all easily come by; I picked them all up at my local supermarket. Of course it is a popular misconception that Sushi is essentially raw fish, this not the case (that would be Sashimi), this book contains fish, chicken and steak dishes in roughly equal numbers. There are even several vegetarian dishes.

I have to admit to a slight bias here, I love Japan, the Japanese people, their culture and of course their cooking. This is an excellent book and is great fun to experiment with. The dishes are a somewhat westernised version of Japanese food (There are no squid dishes in it and Japanese do eat a lot of squid), but that's probably all to the good. I really can highly recommend it. Why not impress your friends by having a Japanese themed evening? Douzo omeshiagari kudasai.
